Panafric is business hotel with very friendly staff and warm welcome, which gave me the positive impression from the first minute. Room is very clean, receptionists are very quick. Restaurants have very good choice of food and drinks. It would be very useful to refurbish the windows, since it`s not so good.

The Panafic is underrated as a Nairobi hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you could hope for. Staff are happy, committed, genuine and helpful. There is a lovely pool and it does not have the sterile atmosphere of many Nairobi hotels. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for all the elements of a... More
